Our pro squad, Manifest Nation, just released their summer video entitled, ‘No More Tears’.
This piece choreographed to Ariana Grande’s ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ by T Damien Anyasi, features Angelika and Mok as our feature characters. We also introduce new faces Esme, Alexandra, Macaulay and Marcella in their first video with the squad.
Tell us if you enjoyed the project and why! The video can also be found here on YouTube. Stay tuned for more news on our developing squad. We are proud!
Last weekend we were invited, for the 5th consecutive year, to share what we do at Hampstead Summer Festival. It was probably the most fun year ever!
Featuring a host of our open-class students, our professional performance company, Manifest Nation, and the Hampstead public, we shared classes, performances and Hampstead’s longest ‘Soul Train Line’!
Here are some highlights from our wonderful weekend..
We’d like to thank all those that joined us, and for more footage, check this Instagram post !
Last month, some of our adult dancers from our professional company, Manifest Nation, competed at the World Crew Battle event in Deptford, London.
The winners of the event had the opportunity to represent the UK at the international finals in Berlin! Alex, Angelika, Francesc, Kadeem & Tru managed to make it to the final but were defeated by Rain Future Crew who went on to get to the finals in Berlin too. Props to them.
Please join us in applauding our squad for a job well done and stay connected to the Facebook page for updates on what’s happening next with them. French publication, Striter, reported that Manifest Nation were the only crew that came prepared effectively for the event.
It showed 🙂
This week we were invited to ‘Bring the Noise’ at the local UCL Academy student’s party, and it was truly fulfilling. Here are some images of our time starting the party.
UCL Organisation raised in excess of £1000 for the young homeless of London through ticket sales, and we are honoured to have been able to support this cause AND engage with local young dance enthusiasts.
